managing project teams + assignments through PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have about 20-40 projects per office with staff shifting between projects and typically working on 5-7 projects at a time.

    If I wanted to create a role where a person could add staff to projects and create assignments for each staff through PWA, what would I need to do and how wold it work, i.e. once you have the access where do you go in PWA to physically add staff to a project team or assign a team member to a task.

    Your assistance is much appreciated.

  • Hi Toni, The assignment you are talking about are you thinking task assignment within a project or do you guys use resource plans for the assignment. If it is a task assignment you will need project professional since this functionality is only available in 2010. Resource plans can be created in the project center in 2007 Hope that helps

  • Hi,

    Do you have Project Server 2007 or 2010? 2010 has some extra features in PWA which makes the whole process somewhat easier than in 2007.

  • Hi Marc

    Using the Build Team option in the Project Center works well for me. Good to know that in Project 2010 we can assign tasks to staff through the Web!
